About Volt

ABOUT VOLT

We’re an Istanbul-based tech startup that connects any car owner driving in the city with passengers going in the same direction at the same time. 8 out of 10 cars in traffic have only the driver. That’s why our mission at Volt is to fill up empty seats in traffic. This will eventually help us reach our founding vision of solving Istanbul’s traffic problem, which is ultimately the result of the 85% empty seats!

Unlike other services, we do not put more cars in traffic, and we do not dispatch a car to you. Volt simply connects you with a car that’s already headed in the same direction as you. This allows us to offer you the most affordable ride while allowing our car owners to enjoy driving their own cars for free!

FOUNDING VISION

We’re here to ultimately solve traffic in the world’s most congested cities. We’ll do that over the next 10 years following the below strategy:

  • Short term strategy (3 years): Build a reliable platform that connects passengers-drivers going in the same direction at the same time.
  • Mid-term strategy (3-7 years): Connect drivers-drivers going in the same direction, thus creating a reliable mechanism to take cars off the road
  • Long-term strategy (+ 8 years): As the number of cars on the road declines, fill the gap with autonomous driverless cars, hence the name Volt.

In the age of the sharing economy, Volt plays a vital role in reducing a significant problem of major cities: traffic congestion. And it does it in a very creative way. I believe the next decade will be marked by the importance of sharing and I hope Volt will be one of the key influencers of this trend in the coming days.
